In my professional career as an educational researcher and software developer, I formally trained many adults and mentored younger people who worked for me. Raising three sons, now in their 20's and 30's, provided many opportunities to tutor them through high school and college. I have tutored a number of people in various branches of mathematics including probability and statistics. I am well informed about general computer topics with a detailed knowledge of relational databases and Microsoft Office in particular. Java, C plus plus, C, SQL and Basic are among the computer languages I have mastered.
My objective is to help each learner master the subject, but also to help them become more effective learners on their own. My approach is to stick closely their text and other materials, making sure they can complete the assignments correctly. In addition, I make sure they understand what they are doing so that they don't get lost later on.
The first time we meet I consider a trial lesson. I do my best to help and, at the end of the hour, I decide if I can be of help and ask the learner if they want to continue with me as their tutor. If they do not, I do not charge for that first hour.
If you choose me as your tutor, I look forward to meeting and working with you.
